Why does a static library need -fPIC ? Because it is commonly linked with dynamically loaded modules.  There is a project to provide a dynamic libmilter.so - but in the meantime, libmilter.a need to be statically linkable with dynamic modules.

sendmail-8.14.3-4.fc11 now has shared libmilter. The pymilter package seems to build fine, it just needs to remove -lsmutil from the linking command.
